Does your Bluetooth-enabled portable keyboard seem a bit old and bulky? Maybe you should take a look at futuristic ideas such as virtual projection keyboards. Sounds awesome, but how long do you have to wait? What if I told you it’s here, now, and ready for you to buy? Then take a look at the $150 Celluon EPIC Virtual Keyboard.

We thought it might be an interesting investment, but we weren’t totally sure. So we decided to buy it and review it, and then you have a chance to win it for yourself!

About the Celluon EPIC

The Celluon EPIC is a virtual keyboard by means of projection, meaning that it can use laser light to project an image of a keyboard onto a flat surface in front of it. It can then detect whenever you “press a key” on the flat surface and translate that into a keystroke that the computer actually understands. Long story short, it’s a fancy keyboard that looks futuristic and can theoretically provide some benefits (primarily space and weight when compared to a regular Bluetooth keyboard). You can get it off of Amazon for $149.99, which isn’t exactly a cheap steal.

Competitors

Surprisingly, there doesn’t seem to be any competitors to the Celluon EPIC. Celluon makes the claim that it’s the world’s only virtual projection keyboard, and that claim appears to be true. The only other product that can be found is the Celluon Magic Cube ($150), which just seems to be the EPIC’s predecessor — but it could be seen as the only competitor since it’s still being sold. This is pretty rare, however, since the Celluon EPIC is already a few years old. But, if any other alternatives do exist somewhere, then they aren’t major enough to really be found by any consumer for purchase.

The Celluon EPIC Virtual Keyboard comes with the follow specifications:

  • 19mm key pitch
  • Overall keyboard dimensions: 100mm height, 240mm width
  • Device dimensions: 70mm x 35mm x 20mm
  • Available as English QWERTY and German QWERTZ
  • Recognition rate: 350 characters per minute (or 70 words per minute)
  • Light source: red laser diode (IEC Class 1 Laser)
  • 660 mAh battery
  • 2 hours of use on battery, 3 hours to charge the battery
  • Connect via Bluetooth
  • Compatible operating systems: iOS 4+, Android 4.0+, Windows XP+, Mac OS X, Blackberry 10. Linux is also compatible according to my own testing.

Unboxing

There’s really not a whole lot that comes in the box. There’s the projection device, a USB charging cable (but no power supply, so you can just plug it into a computer or any other USB power supply you have lying around), and a few informational papers. There’s just a separator between the projection device and everything else, so it’s packed pretty simply. This was already a preview of how easy it will be to set up.

Design

The Celluon EPIC is certainly small and can easily fit in any small pocket. It’s also pretty lightweight, so I’d say it’s about 100-150 grams. On the front of the projection device, you’ll find the laser emitter at the top, a camera-like sensor in the middle (meaning that if this is covered, the device won’t recognize any of your input), and a flash light for illumination at the bottom. On the back, you’ll find the on/off switch and the microUSB port for charging.

Set Up

Setting up the Celluon EPIC is dead simple. All you need to do is turn the projection device on, and it’ll automatically enable its Bluetooth signal as well. Then, with your other device (smartphone, tablet, or computer), go into your Bluetooth settings and pair to the device. It’s so simple that you don’t even need to enter in a four-digit PIN as some other devices may require. Just choose the device, and you should be connected within a few seconds. It’ll be functional from there.

Experience

Using the Celluon EPIC is a very interesting experience. The keyboard that is emitted onto the surface in front of it is decently sized, and includes all of the keys you’ll care about — it’s nearly the same to a full-sized keyboard, but not quite. You’ll find a few buttons such as apostrophes, quotation marks, and more along the very top where you’d find the F1-F12 keys on a normal keyboard. The keyboard projection is a bit faint in well-lit areas, but darker areas will provide a well-defined keyboard.

To get the keyboard to function correctly, you have to make absolutely sure that you’re using a flat, opaque surface. I tried using it once on a table that had a layer of glass on top of the wood, and it didn’t function exactly as it should — it thought I was pressing a neighboring key instead. However, once the conditions are right, the keyboard is actually pretty usable. The keys are recognized, and the maximum typing speed is acceptable (it’s still quite a bit lower than my normal typing speed, but it’s tolerable).

celluon virtual keyboard review

According to the manufacturer, keystrokes are recognized and then relayed via an invisible infrared layer combined with an optical sensor. The recognition process works as follows: When the user presses a key on the projected keyboard, the infrared layer is interrupted. This produces UV reflections that are recognized by the sensor in three dimensions, allowing the system to assign a coordinate (keyboard character). Whenever I cover the optical sensor, the device doesn’t detect any keystrokes, so this seems to be correct.

Feedback Solution (And A New Problem)

One of my biggest concerns about this virtual keyboard was the fact that I wouldn’t actually have any tactile feedback, which is a criticism of most keyboards that don’t have traditional physical keys that depress. However, I was very surprised — the Celluon EPIC accommodates for this by beeping every time it recognizes a key press. Since this is still sensory feedback, it isn’t quite as awkward as no feedback at all.

celluon virtual keyboard review

The beeps do lead to another problem though — it can get annoying for anyone else around you. If you were to say use this in a classroom setting where quietness is a must, this is an absolute deal-breaker. You’d quickly annoy everyone in that class as well as the teacher. Even worse, there’s no way to turn the beeping off — there’s no settings page that you can access, and there’s only the on/off switch for the entire device. There’s nothing that would control the beeping. Sadly, while I think this solution is pretty clever, it creates another problem that in some ways may even be worse than the original issue.

Typing Speed

Like I mentioned above, the keyboard is surprisingly accurate in the keystrokes it detects, but that detection comes at the price of typing speed. Typing at 70 words per minute may sound like a lot, but most people don’t type at a consistent speed for an entire minute. They have bursts of quicker and slower typing, and once you have one of your faster bursts, the projection device will start to miss some of those keystrokes. To give a rough approximation, it cannot detect anything faster than someone who’s become fairly proficient at typing on their smartphone or tablet’s on-screen keyboard.

Satisfying the Flat, Opaque Surface Requirement

Do you always have a large, flat, opaque surface available wherever you go? Chances are the answer to this is no. In school, a lot of desks I sit at are quite small, so there wouldn’t be any room for a projected keyboard — or if there was, then there wouldn’t be enough room to also have a tablet standing on the same desk.

celluon epic keyboard review

Also, a lot of times you’ll probably be using a tablet or computer on your lap, while you’re sitting down, not in front of any sort of table. In scenarios like this, you won’t be able to use the EPIC. Having a flat, opaque surface is a hard requirement, or else it simply won’t function. While it works well in the conditions required by the device, I don’t often come across those conditions while I’m on the go — if I’m at home, I’d rather be using a regular full-sized keyboard rather than the EPIC.

The Price

Lastly, there’s the price consideration. You can get this for $150, which isn’t exactly something anyone can spend in an instant. For a comparison, you can get a decent tablet-aimed (meaning not full-sized) Bluetooth keyboard starting at less than $20. Sure, the Celluon EPIC may save you some space and it looks awesome and futuristic, but it costs multiple times more than a “traditional” Bluetooth keyboard that will most likely allow you to type faster and enjoy much longer battery life. Plus, when you think about it, those smaller keyboards aren’t really that big, are they? Do you really not have enough room for a little keyboard like that in addition to your tablet?

celluon epic keyboard review

Conclusion

So, is the Celluon EPIC an awesome piece of technology? It sure is! Is it something you should put on your shopping list? I don’t think it is. While it’s a really neat concept and it actually works surprisingly well, it’s still far from being a product that makes it an obviously better option to a regular Bluetooth keyboard. Simply put, it’s too expensive, the beeping can’t be turned off, and the flat, opaque surface requirement may be quite difficult to satisfy for some users. I really think that the drawbacks outweigh the benefits.

MakeUseOf recommends: Don’t buy — it’s cool, but not worth the money and hassle.

    You do realize there is a button combination to adjust the sensitivity, brightness, and how loud the beeping is... You should try reading instructions, it can help...

    I hope that eventually these types of keyboards become better and easier to use, because I think they're really neat. Of course, once they become standard nobody will think anything of it, but for some reason this really appeals to me.

    I would be using this with my tablet propped up in front of me, exactly where the projector is. I'd have to put the tablet either to the left or right of the projector. I can feel the crink in my neck just thinking about it.

    Unfortunately, a physical keyboard. Would definitely get this if money was no object - It has it's uses (Travel size; less physical evidence to use in manual key logging activities; etc).

  14. Donald A
    February 28, 2014 at 2:16 am

    I'd choose a regular keyboard for sure! Nothing beats the feedback received from hitting actual (physical) keys. Besides, I couldn't place this virtual thingy on my lap (or any queer position I deem fit for my keyboard) as I could a physical one that wouldn't 'change shape'

  15. Reggie B

    Nowadays the more portable the more convenient for us, but I guess for me it is really more comfortable using a physical keyboard :) to a mobile phone I guess virtual keyboard is more for business and research type of person I'm comfortable using the mobile keyboard instead :)

    I can't say which I prefer for sure since I have not tried a virtual keyboard! That being said I do like the feedback I get from a physical keyboard but for texting and tableting I think I would prefer this. I do wish that they had chosen a sound that was similar to the clacking of keyboard keys which I can't imagine would have been too terribly difficult. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  26. Mark Hansen
    February 23, 2014 at 8:56 pm

    I prefer a physical keyboard so far, but it might be because I've never really taken the time to properly get accustomed to a virtual one. I too like sensory feedback in the form of depressing keys.
    That you need a solid opaque surface doesn't bother me too much though, I feel I got that near everywhere I use a laptop or the likes.

  27. Jess
    February 23, 2014 at 7:35 pm

    I've never used a virtual keyboard, so I'm not sure which I would choose. Based on how easy it looks to use, though, I'd have to say I'd go with virtual if only because it seems less likely to get stuff spilled on it! :D

  28. Cassie S

    Backlit bluetooth with multiple connections is definitely the way to go for me. I can use my laptop and my desktop from my couch and even a game console as well. The nice glow it has is just right for dim light.

    Virtual keyboards are futuristic and takes a little getting use to. Once improved upon, everyone will probably have one.

    Given the money involved, I prefer physical keyboard, else Virtual ones are much better.

  33. Ryan
    February 22, 2014 at 3:24 pm

    I'd choose the virtual because it changes up the experience of typing and the beeping sound extends my tactile sense into an auditory channel through the button-press sonic feedback.

  34. Adi M
    February 22, 2014 at 1:11 pm

    i'd use whatever is more comfortable, but to decide i really need this laser keyboard :D

  42. Francis D

    I always want to be updated with every gizmo. And if money is not an issue then why not try the latest.

  43. Wei Lian L

    I would still prefer physical keyboard. The virtual keyboard is quite noisy and should attract quite some attention in public.

  44. Yash S

    Whenever I would go out of station I could use this keyboard rather than to use other physical keyboards..

  45. Csanad
    February 21, 2014 at 10:12 am

    I would gladly try a virtual keyboard with my tablet and my smartphone. I will surely try it with my PC, but while I am typing with 10 fingers and paying attention to the screen, that would be with some difficulties to use (regarding physical feedback).

  46. Mark D
    February 21, 2014 at 9:33 am

    There are certainly situations where a virtual keyboard would be a better choice, but a physical keyboard would usually be more practical.

  47. Elric
    February 21, 2014 at 8:16 am

    As I haven't gotten a chance to try either, I can't say for sure. But I would think that the virtual one would be easier to take with you and have to use when you would prefer to use an actual keyboard.

  48. Rachel R
    February 21, 2014 at 7:13 am

    I would like to try the virtual because I feel like tactile will soon be obsolete. I might as well get a head start! The beeping may bother me at first, but I'm sure I will get used to it.

  49. Rick
    February 21, 2014 at 7:06 am

    A virtual keyboard may be fun for the novelty, but it is not likely to replace my physical keyboard.
    It requires a flat surface which means a hard surface with no give.
    That wont be comfortable to type on.
    However, due to its size it might prove useful in a pinch.

  50. Leslie Fender

  51. Vic L
    February 21, 2014 at 4:19 am

    If you use this with a physical keyboard on desktop, I say no, but it can replace as a bluetooth keyboard for phones because you don't need high speed typing with using mini bluetooth keyboards.

  52. Johnna Rhodus
    February 21, 2014 at 3:19 am

    I have not yet tried a virtual keyboard, to compare!!! I don't know, but it seems like perhaps there are advantages to each. Certainly with a phone, the virtual keyboard rocks!!! A tablet- well, it would be easy enough to have those split tablets with the real keyboard..

    I've never used a virtual keyboard but I can see where it would come in handy. If I could only choose one, it would be the physical keyboard, mostly because of the requirement for the virtual keyboard that the surface must be flat and this is not always the case.

  79. Toby
    February 20, 2014 at 1:00 am

    I'd like to check it out touch typing and see how it fares. I've used physical keyboards, bluetooth keyboards big and small. To know for sure if a virtual keyboard is better you have to experience it. I'd love to have one though. I'm sure I'd find places to use it.

  80. Jerry

  82. Mason
    February 20, 2014 at 12:27 am

    I definitely prefer a physical keyboard. Even if the virtual keypresses cause a vibration or sound, a physical keyboard is much more aesthetically pleasing and responsive. I honestly don't see virtual keyboards going very far, and I would still go with a physical keyboard even if money wasn't a problem. Because of these reasons, I would prefer a bluetooth keyboard over a Celluon EPIC keyboard, although it is a very awesome piece of technology. Thank you for the giveaway.

  83. Kevin

    I'd much prefer this keyboard if it works well. But I've got to say the beeping bothers me. But you probably need that audible feedback to make sure it accepted your keystroke. But I'd rather it be a click or something.

  86. Eric M

    I don't know which I like better. I have to try to virtual first to see how it feels before I can really make a decision. There are a lot of benefits to a physical keyboard though that the virtual does not have yet.

    Personally, I think a BT keyboard is still beteer, because you still have physical control over it.

    And I can put it on my lap or next to me while hanging in the sofa.

    For the virtual, you really need a surface.

    It seems to me that using this is very similar to using an on-screen keyboard on a tablet. I'd prefer a physical keyboard because I wouldn't have to look at the keys to see what I was typing, as long I had room to carry it.

    I prefer a physical one with tactile feedback. If money were no object, I'd give the EPIC a try, but i think that would be just a try...

    I have only ever used a physical keyboard. I would love to try the Celluon EPIC to see whether it is worth the money compared to a bluetooth keyboard please, thank you.

    Money not being an object I'd prefer the virtual keyboard as there wouldn't be keys for little bits of crap to get stuck in it... it wouldn't get dirty like keyboards ALWAYS do...

  231. Griff
    February 18, 2014 at 6:56 pm

    I plan on trying to talk my boss into buying one for our R&D section. I think it would work for several projects. Myself? I'd like to try it. I've got nerve damage on my right arm so my typing speed went from 90+ to about 44-. So, it might work well for me. I do think it would be great if they could make a few modifications possible. Such as no beep, ergonomic keyboard, etc. Good article.

    Most likely a physical Keyboard unless the new gen of virtual keyboards have improved quite a bit....

  234. Robert Brown
    February 18, 2014 at 6:48 pm

    I'd be willing to try a virtual keyboard. The obvious solution to the beeping problem is to make it possible to hear the beeps only through a bluetooth headset...which many of us wear almost all the time anyway.

  235. Jimmy

    I'd choose a physical keyboard for PC coz I'm used to it but a virtual one for tablet since it's lighter to carry around.

    If money were no object, I'd definitely get one of these, if nothing else, just to turn heads when using it in public. It would be interesting to see one of these paired with Google glass. Truly futuristic stuff there....

    I'm not so sure I need a virtual keyboard - yet! It looks and acts like the cinema version of the same thing, but not quite as sophisticated yet. For now, I probably wouldn't spend the money. But getting it free?? That's the ticket!

  244. Rúben
    February 18, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    I really don't know, the portability is a great point of the EPIC Virtual Keyboard, but the price is high, a standard keyboard is cheaper, but less portable. Something in the middle should be great. Maybe a rubber physical keyboard would be my choice, but the EPIC seems to me that makes honor to it's name, the price is the one thing that would keep me from buying it.

  245. Colin C

    It's a great concept, but the implementation needs some improvement, such: usability on more surfaces and beep mutability.

  250. Pierre

    It depends: Physical blutooth keyboard for home and Celluon EPIC for "On the Go".

    February 18, 2014 at 5:34 pm

    I would love a virtual keyboard just b/c I'm into efficiency( as far as reducing clutter and consolidating things) I'm a fan of the minimalist lifestyle and I like the small form factor and portability of the celluon keyboard. Plus lasers are just cool!

  253. Ajith Sen
    February 18, 2014 at 5:34 pm

    I would carry epic around with me. But most probably I'll use a physical keyboard when I can get hold of one.

    February 18, 2014 at 4:52 pm

    hard to answer since I have not tried one. I will have to say there are a few limitations on the VK that do ot exist on standard which make it difficult to use at times.

  264. Jasmin
    February 18, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    Virtual keyboard with out a doubt.. Aside from it being cool it is so easy to carry with out the added bulk and weight. It tells it all :)

  265. Hal J
    February 18, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    I think if money were no object I might go with the blu tooth anyway simply because you can't turn off the beeping on this virtual one and it would drive me nuts

  266. Catherine
    February 18, 2014 at 4:49 pm

    Since I haven't tried a virtual keyboard I couldn't say for sure but I would probably stick to a real one.

    if the keyboard had a spanish layout, would have no doubt

  268. Robert Turton

  276. Kate Gould

  277. MarkTGT

    I am absolutely ready to experiment with a virtual keyboard, however I worry about the spray of laser light getting into someone's eyes if they were close by (example a small child sitting on your knee) - I'm a Mom, what can I say

  286. Becky Bartlett
    February 18, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    A physical keyboard not sure I would always be able to find a hard flat surface for the virtual one.

  287. Rory L

    Definitely need the feedback, but different feedback options or volume, that beeping is too much. Id prefer a bluetooth over that.

    I have an ancient Think Outside Stowaway Bluetooth keyboard from way back in the Palm PDA days. I've never been overly fond of the Stowaway's key layout, but it is small and reliable, so I haven't replaced it yet. During my time using Nokia N800 and N810 Internet Tablets, I did look at these laser projection keyboards, and I was tempted, but I didn't like the idea of typing with zero key travel. Based upon this review, that worry may have been unfounded, but it's good that I stayed away in any case. The beeping would have driven me mad. I'll stay with my Stowaway until it dies or something else interesting and significantly better comes along.

  290. Vinz Glenn
    February 18, 2014 at 3:55 pm

    Physical. Considering that this keyboard would always need an ideal surface and this wouldn't be suitable for gaming. Other than that, it's an interesting pick to show to your friends.

  291. Tate S

  293. Jarred S

    I would have to give this one a try first, but most likely I would stick to a physical keyboard due to the beeping, because I would most often be using it during class and that would be rather annoying to those around me as well as the professor.

  294. Sayed I

    Physical keyboard -- simply because of the limitations of the virtual technology. Now, let me control what the keyboard looks and sounds like, and I'll be first in line for virtual!

  296. Roselle Fernandez
    February 18, 2014 at 3:44 pm

    still a bluetooth keyboard as it response more effectively,

  297. Rachel K

  298. Daniel G

  315. Steve Costello

  318. Bruce Dale

    To be absolutely honest, a bluetooth keyboard is more versatile- no need for a flat surface.

    I'd prefer a virtual keyboard because it's easy to carry and my fingers won't slide on other keys accidentally. I would choose a cheaper bluetooth keyboard but I want this very much.
